Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Sedation Dentistry: The use of Laughing Gas & Oxygen for Sedation

The calming inhalant known as laughing gas is for patients who are mildly or moderately anxious or nervous. It eases their anxieties so that they can relax and undergo treatment comfortably and safely. The gas is administered by placing a small hood over the patient's nose. As the gas takes effect, the patient becomes relaxed, but is still awake and can communicate. When the gas is turned off, the effects of sedation wear off almost immediately.

Dental Anesthesia For Children

Reflections Family Dentistry treats pediatric patients in Granite Bay. Our office often treats patients who present special challenges related to their age, behavior, medical conditions, or any other special needs. To address these challenges effectively in order to provide "predictable" treatment, your pediatric dentist may recommend treating your child under General Anesthesia.

Reflections Family Dentistry, by virtue of training and experience, is qualified to recognize the indications for such an approach and to render such care. Our team will discuss all the necessary steps that must be taken in order to promptly and safely complete your child's dental treatment after this treatment option has been chosen.
